‘A Pile Of Ghosts: A Cinematic Heterotopia of Spectral Urbanization’ is published at the International Journal of Film and Media Arts, Vol. 7 No. 1 (2022): GEECT Transversal Entanglement – Artistic Research in Film.
This special issue approaches artistic research from the domains of artistic practice in film and its implications for research in film education institutions. It expands the contributions generated by the Transversal Entanglement – Artistic Research in Film conference organized and hosted by the Institute for Artistic Research IKF1 at Film University Babelsberg, which took place last year. It comes along with the drawings by Christiane Büchner that were made during the presentations of this inspiring and well-executed online conference.
A Pile of Ghosts received the Award for Excellence at the East Asian Experimental Competition at the 36th Image Forum Festival Tokyo!
“Starting with the fiction of the Eiffel Tower in China, the film poignantly shows the fragile actuality that this multilayered and uncertain mass is reality, which is an accumulation of various symmetrical objects, such as new architecture and ruins, real estate brokers, and actors, the sound of a hammer echoing in the void and music from a Hollywood movie melodrama, the pseudo-romance between a nonexistent hotel guest and the host, etc. We admire the insightful editing and music design, which deeply elaborate the space between documentary and fiction, and we also would like to express our respect for this ambitious film that strikes a unique rhythm.” Jury statement
